We're excited to announce that Design Packaging has been awarded three GDUSA (Graphic Design USA) awards: Our DPI Luxe Kit for Luxury Packaging, the 2010 Chateau Ste Michelle Artist Meritage Series wine box for Wine & Liquor, and the Julia Baker Confections chocolate box for Food & Beverage.
The sleek black & white promotional piece is given to prospective clients, or, anyone interested in our company. The look is modern and contemporary, featuring two main pieces: the sleeve and the a rigid box that houses information. The white patent leather sleeve highlights the elegant subtleness of the debossing pattern while the interior is lined with rich faux suede, giving it an exceptional look and feel. The rigid box is detailed with a spot varnish pattern and nestled inside are loose-leaf pages highlighting our packaging, and a business card. The book-like construction allows the receiver to store it on a desk, personal library, or anywhere else.
Through their Artist Series Meritage wines, Chateau Ste Michelle pays tribute to the work of one renowned artist each year. The 2010 edition utilizes a unique design and featured work from the late T.L. Lange whose use of vivid colors paired with abstract shapes offered us endless design inspiration. Hinged together, the wine box opens to unveil three triangular compartments each displaying a bottle of wine and portions of Lange’s creation. The collapsible design allows for minimal retail shelf space when closed, but still creates an impressive display piece when opened.
This large, three tier oval box for Julia Baker Confections is an impressive holiday installment. Red, and covered in faux alligator, you pull on the ribbon to reveal 16 pieces of decadent chocolates and truffles. The top features an embossed gold foil hot stamp "B" and a gloss coating. Every confectionary creation is made from high quality ingredients (sans preservatives) and entirely from scratch. We sought to create a packaging program that conveyed that same level of attention to detail and craftsmanship.
